Adult Male Baltimore Oriole Recovering After Flying into a Window

Hooray for Bumper! He is a handsome, adult, male Baltimore Oriole that had flown into a window and broken his clavicle. He also showed signs of ringworm which has been every where due to our wet summer. Poor guy had to stay in the house for 10 days to take all his medicine, but the last few days he has been building his strength for flying in the aviary outside.

Here's proof that our clavicle wrap works. We caught a quick picture of him flying. Today is his release day. He will undoubtedly head back to Columbia City (IN) where he came from, meet up with his family and soon join in the migration south. Best wishes for your journey, Bumper.
